Increasing radius oval

Postby woodman » Wed Mar 29, 2017 9:28 pm

I DREW UP A BIG 6 LANE OVAL INCREASING RADIUS TURNS ONE SQUEEZE ......THE APEX OF THE TURNS THE LANE SPACING IS 6"......THE STRAIGHTS TAPER DOWN TO 4.5" GOING INTO THE TURNS.....10' X 24' FOOT PRINT....
The radius of the Exit of the turn is larger than the Entry of the turn,allowing you to accelerate harder on Exit.
This enables the car to accelerate in a forward facing, yet sideways controlled slide ........................................

The build of a try oval here, plus video showing the action.........

Very nice layout, racing on this track you'd better be on your toes. :laughing-rolling:
The poor guy in the center lane will have to make some kamikaze moves for sure :auto-driving: :scared-eek: :auto-driving: :auto-crash:
Should have some beaten and banging like the old Bristol track, :auto-crash:
The drivers will have to use the chrome horn coming out of those corners. :auto-checkeredflag: :auto-driving:
